A neighbor asked for motor oil for her 01 4Runner. Her dipstick was bone dry and had burnt oil caked on it, as a daily driver who knows how long it's been that low. It took about 3 quarts to get within the marks. Started the engine, rechecked the level, even with all that fresh oil it's dirty. I can't believe the engine didn't seize. Random but had to share, she should be in a Toyota commercial.

I filled it from two partial 5 quart containers so it's approximate but I poured at least a quart and it hadn't touched the dipstick so I agree, it probably had about 2.5 quarts. She did mention that the engine had a "rattle" which went away after I filled it. Time will tell what fails first on that engine now and how long it will take. I'll update if I can.
